Motorists offered ice cream as relief from potholes

Associated Press

FRANKLIN, Mich. -- A suburban Detroit business is offering a treat for those who have had their driving disrupted by potholes in recent weeks.

The Detroit Free Press reported Farmhouse Coffee & Ice Cream in Franklin is offering a free scoop of Ashby Sterling Ice Cream's "Michigan Pothole" for those who have replaced a tire or fixed other damage because of a pothole.

The newspaper said to get a scoop, bring in a receipt from Feb. 1 and beyond detailing the repair. The promotion runs until March 25.

The ice cream flavor is described as "thick black tar fudge and chocolate ice cream with chunky chocolate cookie asphalt pieces."

Road crews in Michigan have stepped up efforts to patch potholes that have become damaging and dangerous amid fluctuating winter temperatures.
